QUINT Power - 4G Power supplyHave you heard of Phoenix Contact’s QUINT POWER range of power supplies?

If you have not, where were you!

Our QUINT power supplies have been consistently making waves as THE power supply fit for any industrial use.

It is that good that Phoenix Contact has released the fourth generation of the high-performance QUINT POWER range, only this time it’s spearheading the industry by embracing the spirit of IIOT.

Tell us MORE about this QUINT

Our QUINT POWER is the one and only power supply in the market to incorporate Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

This feature is the latest addition to the already proven power supply unit that comes with SFB (Selective Fuse Breaking) technology, preventive function monitoring, high noise immunity as well as Power Boost.

Wait, What’s Power Boost?

QUINT 4 Power Supplies dynamic boost

The Power Boost technology allows the power supply unit to withstand indefinitely 125% or tolerate up to 200% of its maximum rated output current for 5 seconds without malfunctioning.

You heard that right, up to 200% of its maximum output current unlike others who would be fried to a crisp right about now.

Not just a Power Boost but empowering People too!

This technology allows users; engineers or technicians, to read and download configuration data of the power supply with any NFC enabled devices such as smartphones or tablets.

All you need is an Android device and you’re good to go.

This will also be handy at industrial sites during commissioning or maintenance where more often than not, there will be unforeseen circumstances where configuration cables are misplaced or worse laptops are not downloaded with the configuration software.

Another practical advantage is that the NFC technology allows configuration to be done in places that have low accessibility.

Examples are hard to reach places such power supply units that are installed at tight, very high or very low positions where it is difficult to carry a laptop.

Laptops can be bulky and requires a power supply to read power supplies (oh the irony). With smartphones and NFC, you could read data through the palms of your hands.

The QUINT POWER configuration App can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.

Say goodbye to legacy multi-meters and expensive devices!  Who says you can’t use your phones on the job.

I’m super excited now! Tell me more…..

Configuration data such as device details, output voltage, output characteristics, signalling and control input mode can now be read, configured and then be downloaded without any need for physical cabling to the power supply.

Surely with the QUINT you’ll be seeing increase in productivity.

Without the access baggage -laptop and configuration cable – it reduces the time needed for configuration especially for projects with large quantities of power supply units.

The QUINT POWER power supply range can be used in various industries such as oil and gas, transportation, water, marine, power and chemical facilities as well as in the factory automation and manufacturing facilities where reliability and technical superiority are highly valued.

So if you’re looking for POWER SUPPLIES, look no further.

Our QUINT 4 is your answer.

With NFC enabled you’ll be giving your business the power of electricity, in your hands.

A Reliable, Intelligent and Powerful “Heart” – Quint 4 Power Supply Unit

From |

William_HarveyA reliable, intelligent and powerful “heart”

In the course of my work, I deal with Power Supply which is the heart of the whole electrical operation. While not all operations are the same, they cannot function without electricity, which is what makes  Power Supply units indispensable.

Quint 4The new Phoenix Contact’s Quint 4th Generation Power Supplies feature an integrated NFC interface for parameterization via mobile devices or PCs. This allows the commissioning engineer to closely match signaling thresholds and characteristic curves to the plant’s requirements. More than 40 parameters can be configured on an individual basis. Once the power supply has been parameterized, it is a simple task to transfer the settings to other devices via the app or other software, which will save effort and time for the user. Moreover, the front-panel buttons for adjusting the output voltage, as well as all other configured parameters, can be protected with a password to prevent unauthorized access and tampering.

The power supply offers preventive function monitoring to allow the plant operator to run remote diagnostics on the unit to optimize plant availability. The power supply permanently monitors the output voltage and current. Critical situations are visualized using front-panel LEDs, floating relay contacts, and active signal outputs; the monitoring data is signaled to the control system before a fault actually occurs.

When the power supply unit is supplying more than the specified rated current, it is operating in boost mode. The power supply and the connected loads continue to operate normally, and the output voltage remains at 24 V DC. Preventive signaling allows early detection before a fault like this actually occurs. For instance, once a motor with a mechanical problem has been identified, it can be repaired before other loads are subjected to voltage dips.

Such preventive capabilities of our power supply units work just like how we manage our heart health to ensure we can function smoothly in our everyday operations. It is thus pivotal to ensure that we have a reliable and intelligent “heart” in the form of our trusted power supply units for our businesses.
